    Screw on SNAPS

    they make some chicago type screws that are hard to find that use a hex head wrench to tighten. we used them on braces and where rust would play a roll. to get apart.

    i sent some knives off to have them sharpened and polished. i sent them insured . as long as they are in his hands i feel they are responsible. until they make it back here. in my hands . but we live with a bunch of cheats. who will do whatever to make it sound like its my fault. the red flag should be they asked me to send check. i did.

    Finally Got A Claes Patcher.

    only been around 1 and it didn't last . someone tried to do way to much and it broke down. my 30-70 adler far better ,but just me. you just need to glue the leather be for you try sewing. if your doing patch work with walkins i'd go with the jump stitch . good luck with your new machine.

    Glue pot

    if your going to use it every day or most. i stick with the all metal and teflon. if you need to put a way for a time. just pour out to gal. can unscrew the brush and clean the brush out and let dry. after a day or 2 pull remaining glue from the pot. they all have a purpose some are easier to keep clean.

    Vacume Forming Leather Goods

    one other type of vac system is one that runs off of air . can't quit remember the name. its starts out cheap but by the time you get all you need it can even cost more. because in the end for that to work you need all the bows and whistles . the compressor and the check valve the control box . where as the gast is a rotary type and they aren't sealed so you can open them up to replace the rotors or just clean them w/acetone drop of oil and put back together

    Vacume Forming Leather Goods

    vac table is easy to build if your vac kevlar you should run through a holding tank first. i'd us a pc of 8'" or so plastic pipe. cap the ends drill and tap one hole for the check valve and the other for a shut off valve. you can reheat kevlar if it wrinkles just don't burn it you want to get vac fast

    Vacume Forming Leather Goods

    not sure of the vacuum system your using. and it depends on what you want to spend. 1 type is gast i got one off ebay for 80 a while back this was a 1/4 horse. plenty. you can set it up direct or run into a holding tank using the tank you get vac fast. you will need a check valve. so it doesn't bleed back when you turn off the motor. if you put a vac regulator on it [spendy] 145 you set the inches of mercury and it kicks on when the level drops. i've used this for years and wondered way no one else did. i made custom leg,arm,foot braces for years. all you need to remember is you need a wick as in pull a womans nylon over what your going the mold. i'll explain more if you need it gast is the best and you can work on them
  23. for a guy that getting ready to hang up his swivel knife and hammers i run across a lot of birkenstock buckles. may sizes and colors. don't remember where i picked them up but if someone's in the market. and is building or reconditioning them this is what yo will need let me know what you think.
